The 2019 Copa America continues on Friday night and we have looked over the fixtures to pick out our favourite bet from South America’s premier international football tournament.

Today’s Best Copa America Bet: Friday, June 21


Leigh Copson: Back Chile to beat Ecuador & over 1.5 total goals @ 7/5 Coral

Chile made a successful start to the defence of their Copa America crown as they ran out 4-0 winners against Japan. A couple of late goals added some gloss to the scoreline, but coach Reinaldo Rueda will have been delighted to see Alexis Sanchez finally end a five-month goal drought and he will have also been very happy to see the Manchester United forward’s strike partner, Eduardo Vargas, help himself to a brace. Chile took a giant stride towards the quarter-finals with that victory, but can they now secure a place in the last-eight when they face Ecuador on Friday night?

While Chile were rattling in four goals in their opening match, Ecuador were giving up that many in a resounding 4-0 defeat at the hands of Uruguay. Hernan Gomez’s side were simply no match for the Uruguayans on the night and they desperately need to produce an improved performance here if they are to have any hope of getting a positive result from their second outing of the tournament.

History suggests we should not write them off – Ecuador have won five of their last nine meetings with Chile – but Chile have won three of the last four meetings and the way the two teams started the competition cannot be ignored.

The Chileans will go into this match brimming with confidence thanks to that 4-0 win over Japan and their forwards, Vargas and Sanchez, will be champing at the bit as they look to build on their opening-night goals. Ecuador have conceded seven times in their last two games and eight of Chile’s last 10 matches have produced at least two goals, so even if the results have not always gone the Chileans’ way there is definitely appeal in backing them to win a match that features over 1.5 total goals.
